Welcome to 7th Grade Social Studies!
Welcome to Social Studies! I am excited about the opportunity to get to know you, and I am looking forward to a happy and productive school year. This year we will begin with developing skills for social studies. Throughout the year, we will explore medieval times in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, as well as the Renaissance and growth of the modern age in Europe and the Americas. This year, we will explore the world with the help of the interactive, computer based program called History Alive! I will keep a basic calendar and our Table of Contents on this website. The Google Classroom and your History Alive account will be helpful for day to day assignments you need to complete.
On Monday, 9/23, the students will complete their first graded evidence based paragraph. This first paragraph will not be on specific historical content, it will be on the skill of forming an evidence based paragraph. The students will be reviewing and practicing this skill the week of 9/16. They will have several handouts in their folder/binder that they can review including "The Perfect Paragraph" packet, the "Sample Perfect Paragraph" and the "Sentence Starters and Rubric" sheet. They will also have their own work practicing a perfect paragraph that they can review on the Google Classroom.
